  1. Hi @fabien1303 As @dwilawyer indicated I am French and I can maybe help you if needed. It seems to me that dwilawyer gave you a way to find the year of your AL4. Good forum 😄 Salut Fabien Comme l'a indiqué dwilawyer je suis français et je peux peut-être t'aider si besoin. Il me semble que dwilawyer t'a donné un moyen de trouver l'année de tes AL4. Bon forum 😄
  2. Sur le second lien il y a les correspondances, et puis il faut surfer sur le net pour trouver des infos avec les parts numbers, car se sont des transistors avec des réfs spécifiques à Mc 😉 For example for 132188 : https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/replacement-output-transistors-for-mac-4300v.217560/ But the opinion of the pros is to simply put original McIntosh 132188, so the references of the parts list are sufficient to order from Mc
  3. On MC 2125, original parts number are : 132188 & 132189 - 132151 & 132152 Location of transitors not on PC board : 17/24 and parts list : 23/24 = Q227, Q228 - Q229, Q230 - Q231, Q232 - Q233, Q234 - Q237, Q238 - Q239, Q240 See here http://www.berners.ch/McIntosh/Downloads/MC2125_ser_c.pdf http://www.tubebooks.org/file_downloads/McIntosh/semiconductor_data.pdf
  4. Hi @Jdwtx85 To challenge someone with a message use the @Dave A
  5. I love Mark Lanegan Band and I discover this beautiful album 2 x LPs I love this 😍
  6. Hi it is not that there is more bass, but that the tuning of the bass-reflex vent is located lower in frequency when a vent is blocked: here for example 44hz in green with the 3 free vents and 36 Hz in red with 1 plugged vent on CWIII (note this is a simulation, the reality may be slightly different). On the other hand, there is less level between around 45Hz and 100Hz and more between 30 and 45Hz, -3db at 50Hz, but around + 6db at 30Hz. En français : ce n'est pas qu'il y a plus de grave, mais que l'accord de l'évent bass-reflex est situé plus bas en fréquence lorsqu'on bouche un évent : ici par exemple 44hz en vert avec les 3 évents libres et 36 Hz en rouge avec 1 évent bouché sur CWIII (attention c'est une simulation, la réalité est peut-être légèrement différente). En revanche il y a moins de niveau entre environ 45Hz et 100Hz et plus entre 30 et 45Hz, -3db à 50Hz, mais environ +6db à 30Hz. Mieux qu'un long discours, les courbes
  7. Hi, Rough Trade compilation 2020 https://www.discogs.com/fr/Various-Rough-Trade-Shops-Counter-Culture-20/release/17534803
  8. Hi @Dave A I am sure that for your wooden horn, one of the best woods would be grenadilla wood (be careful not ebony). It will be smooth and stable over the years, the downside is that it will be expensive, the benefit will be no loss, because it can be burnt. I don't know where you can find it in your home. http://www.gibonus.com/pop.up/pro-panflute/Grenadill_Tenore.htm You can burn it without shine, the benefit will be no loss. https://www.rarewoodsusa.com/african-blackwood-dream-or-nightmare/ https://www.rarewoodsusa.com/product/blackwood-african/
  9. thank you, Damn I thought he had K55M, I misread 🥵 😄
  10. Hi @AudioDon I would say like @Bacek: check the bottom of your K55M first, then you will look at the rest 😉
  11. Traditionally, here in Europe, cabinetmakers used fish glue ansd other type. For example to make marquetry, bows, violin making ... Often the glue came from Russia where there was a lot of estugeons, they used swim bladders rich in collagen Today this high-end glue is manufactured in small quantities and is used for prestige cabinetmaking and for the restoration of antique furniture. https://www.gillesperrault.com/vertus-des-colles-anciennes/
  12. Hi @KT88 You can ask your top Klipsch specialist at your home in Germany: Werner Enge He's a nice guy and very, very knowledgeable, he's been selling Klipsch and he's been fixing Klipsch for so long. https://www.klipsch-direct.de/index.html 😎
  13. In any case this subject will certainly interest our other french friend @SpeedLimit who was also looking for more bass on his CWIV, especially when they were new. 👍
  14. The rag on my CWIII, the sound is 😍😎 in my room
  15. Hello everyone, First thing: I agree with @Deang and others here: give it time and listen to some music and your Cornwall will have more bass As a preamble, I must tell you that I am French so my English may not be subtle and I risk telling you things that are wrong and the opposite of what I think. There are a few tips for increasing the bass and / or adapting the speaker setting to the room. You can in particular stopper with a cloth or felt napkin one of the three vents to tune the bass lower in frequency. there will be less level, but lower frequencies will be reproduced: for example 34Hz instead of 38Hz. this setting is for example often used for setting and tuning with the room for the famous Onken or Jensen loudspeakers. The advantage of this trick is that it does not damage the speakers, you can do the test in 10 minutes, if you don't like it you remove the rags and it's over. Onken with 2 blocked vents, in the case of Cornwall only 1 in 3 will be necessary, you can put the rags neatly without them protruding and you can put the fabric front again: it will be invisible. https://www.melaudia.net/zfoto/rueil1110/IMG_9307-800x533.jpg
